The nominated story > Cooking at Home: Affordable Bordeaux & Homemade Pasta

Something elemental happened in our kitchen recently. We began to make our pasta from scratch. For years I’d believed this was a practice we weren’t entitled to, not being Italian and having the oh-so-easy bounty of boxed (and even pre-made fresh) pasta available at our local grocery store. In the course of things, I began to see that we were missing out. A friend mentioned that it was easy; she described a nest of flour filled with a freshly cracked egg. A little of this, a little of that… The simple, time-honored act seemed the embodiment of comfort.

Bordeaux wine, organic wine, biodynamic wine

Pasta pairs perfectly with wine from Bordeaux producers that have turned to innovation to produce ready-to-drink, less tannic, versatile food-friendly wines for modern tables. These wines are made by authentic Bordeaux vignerons, but with a global and youthful perspective that includes an emphasis on dry white wines, rosé wines, sparkling wines and sweet wines. A new sense of collaboration, with an eye towards sustainability and diversity, makes recent vintages full of vibrancy.
